How can I reduce my risk of blood-filled pimples?
Several strategies can help you prevent blood-filled pimples:
- Avoid popping, squeezing or scratching pimples. Avoid touching them as much as possible.
- Don’t exfoliate pimples. Wait until a pimple is gone and your skin is healed. Then opt for gentle exfoliators, not gritty scrubs or rough fabrics.
- Keep pimples clean, washing with a gentle cleanser and warm water (not hot) twice a day. Don’t put makeup on top of pimples, as it can prevent healing or worsen clogging.
- Regularly wash anything that touches your face often. Examples include your pillowcase, washcloths, towels, facemasks and phones. This’ll help keep pimples clean so they can heal.
